Outlook 2013 Import NK2 file

This one isn’t PowerShell related, but it’s a common enough issue relating to Exchange that I wanted to post it anyway.

There are many posts showing up in a Google search that incorrectly report the path that Outlook looks at to import the NK2 file from.  The correct path is:

c:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Outlook\%profilename%.nk2

Once you move the NK2 file from the old machine to the new machine, from the run window (start -> run or Windows key + R) type in “outlook.exe /importnk2″ without the quotes and it will import the file and rename it to .old
